Senator John Cornyn's Top Ten Bad Votes By Joshua Withrow on October 23, 2013 Top 10 Bad Votes by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) 1. Cornyn Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare (2013, RCV 206) Senator John Cornyn of Texas voted to end debate and allow Senate Democrats to re-insert funding for ObamaCare into the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government. Although Cornyn did vote against the final bill, he and all Republicans knew that voting for cloture to end debate would allow Senator Harry Reid to fund ObamaCare by a party-line vote, and thus a vote for cloture was a de facto vote to fund ObamaCare. 2. Cornyn Voted for the Wall Street Bailout (T.A.R.P.) (2008, RCV 213) Senator Cornyn voted for the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street. Taxpayers should have never been forced to pay for the mistakes of the big banks. He continues to make excuses for why he voted for the massive bank bailout. Cornyn has defended his vote, saying in 2010 that, “I'm responsible and proud of the vote I cast at the ti ...
Next time someone near you taunts you that the democrats won't negotiate with Republicans, hit them with the facts: In the final hours of the effort to avoid a shutdown, Republicans trotted out a novel suggestion — suddenly, with literally minutes before the government would close for the first time in 17 years, they wanted to sit down and talk. More specifically, the GOP wanted to move to a formal budget conference between the House and Senate, the mechanism that helps reconcile differences between House and Senate budget bills in the normal budgeting process. As one might expect, budget conferences take a considerable amount of time as both sides hammer out details and negotiate compromises, so the offer to sit down for a conference was never meant to be a “real” offer. What makes the GOP’s demand for sit-down talks even more ridiculous is that the Senate Democrats have been asking for a budget conference since April. In fact, Senate Democrats have formally requested sit-down talks over the budg ...
The media narrative surrounding the drive to defund ObamaCare speaks of a Republican crack-up. To be sure, there have been some tensions. But over in the Senate, the tip of the defunding spear is looking pretty sharp, as Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee continue to step up their games. A few days of infighting between the House and Senate have given way to a growing unity of purpose. Meanwhile, the Left is reduced to making utterly nonsensical arguments to defend ObamaCare. There are mounting signs of distance between the White House and congressional Democrats, many of whom are eyeing tough re-election fights in 2014. Second terms have generally been tough eras of diminished power for recent Presidents; Obama's has been worse than most. Even if Senate Democrats fall on their swords to protect his health-care disaster, or he uses the veto pen to win the legislative battle, he may well lose the political war. How can anyone honestly find that state of affairs an aberration, or an offense against the American ...

Issues: Health Care Sen. Mike Lee: Defund Obamacare or shut down the government By JOEL GEHRKE | JULY 9, 2013 AT 3:59 PM 1 Comment Share on printShare on email28Topics: Federal Budget Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, believes that the delay of Obamacare could force Democrats to defend the... Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, thinks President Obama's delay of key provisions of Obamacare could force Senate Democrats to defend the unpopular law during the upcoming congressional debate on a new continuing resolution to fund the government through the 2014 election. “If congressional Democrats want to oppose appropriations bills without additional Obamacare funding, shut down the government, and side with the president and Big Business against the American people, then it's their choice," Lee said. "But three years in, even the president himself has now admitted that Obamacare won’t work. The only responsible choice now is to protect the country from Obamacare's looming disaster, start over and finally begin work on real healt ...

Zero Votes for Obama's Budget Last week, Senate Republicans tried to get Harry Reid and his Democratic majority to do something they haven't done in more than three years: pass a budget. Tea Party-backed Senators Pat Toomey, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee all introduced fiscally conservative budget proposals that were voted down by the Democrats. Senate Democrats have refused to submit their own budget, but Republicans did manage to force a vote on President Obama's budget proposal. "President Obama’s budget proposal, S.Con Res. 41, was introduced by Senator Sessions of Alabama in order to give the Democrats a chance to vote on the President's plan to dramatically raise spending and taxes," commented Max Pappas, FreedomWorks Vice President of Government Affairs and Public Policy. "Unsurprisingly, the Obama budget received zero votes from either party, as it is absurdly unsustainable and indefensible."
A budget offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) failed 16-to-83. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) offered a budget, but it fared no better, losing 17-to-82. A plan modeled after House Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) proposal failed 41-to-58. Senator Pat Toomey's budget (R-PA) got the most votes, but still came up short on a 42-to-57 vote. You will notice these are all Republican proposals, yet Democrats control the majority in the Senate. Where was the Democrat budget? For the third year in a row, Senate Democrats have refused to produce a budget. So Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, decided to put President Obama's 2013 budget proposal on the floor. It failed 0-to-99. That's not a typo. Not one single Democrat was willing to vote for Barack Obama's tax-hiking, big-spending budget. And this isn't the first time. Earlier this year, Obama's budget was defeated 0-to-414 in the House. And last year, the Senate voted 0-to-97 against Obama's 2012 budget. If members of Ob ...
Republicans Show How Democrats are Incompetent - The U.S. Senate rejected five competing budget plans as Republicans attempted to embarrass Democrats for failing to adopt a budget this year. Taking advantage of an obscure Senate rule, Republicans today forced votes on their budget plans as well as one modeled on President Barack Obama’s tax-and-spending request.

Photographer: Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call/Getty Images Though each was defeated, the votes were designed to emphasize Republican complaints that Senate Democrats refuse to explain how they’d reduce the government’s $1.2 trillion budget deficit. Republicans say that voters’ anxiety about the deficit will outweigh their concern for domestic programs targeted for cuts. “Democrats can’t even put a plan on a piece of paper,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kent ...
The Senate will debate 4 budget resolutions today, including Sen. Mike Lee's plan which boldly suggests that we can balance by the year 2017. Yet, during the debates Sen. Stabenow urged the senate to vote 'NO' on all of them. Senate Democrats haven't passed a budget in over 1100 days. We can't afford 6 more years of failed leadership, out of control spending, and record debt. We must have bold leaders that will propose fiscally responsible plans that reduce spending, lower the debt, and balance the budget.
